Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote

4.5
#1 of 59 in Nature in Canary Islands
Explore the volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya National Park, a mountainous area that has been frozen in time since the greatest recorded eruptions took place nearly 300 years ago. This national park forms the core area of a protected biosphere reserve. Access to the park is strictly regulated to guard its delicate wildlife, with only a few footpaths and a short rustic route you can explore by camel. The admission fee includes a bus tour around the interior of the park, with a narrated history of the area in several languages. Located just outside the northern limits of the park is an informative visitor center, with permanent displays and audio-visual presentations explaining the origins of the island and the volcanic activity that formed the park’s unusual scenery. Make Timanfaya National Park a centerpiece of your Lanzarote vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lanzarote itinerary planner.

    Thought really well, beware advised times to avoid unnecessary queues. Park arranged with ample parking and tour bus only route of volcanoes included, this avoids the wild tourism and maintains the landscape, you may like it or not. Also recommended the package of various attractions.

    We have been told the hotel that we can not go to visit it because they are on strike and it is indefinite. We are outraged because we will be a week and do not want to go with bad taste in the mouth. Anyone know if between now and Friday will go? Or is there any bus that go there and take the tour? We are upset.

    You cannot go to Lanzarote and not be in the Park of Timanfaya. It's an amazing experience, the landscape is so different that it is hard to believe that this all the time planet Earth. Black lava, red sand, volcanoes, geysers and a restaurant in which give chickens roasted over the geyser (I heard about them very bad reviews in terms of flavor and freshness). Timanfaya Park is a symbol of Lanzarote so enjoys great popularity. If someone wants to go there by car privately, should appear before the opening of the ok. h. 9, to avoid getting stuck in a few hours.
